Just wondering if there is any interest from any parties wanting to start a necromunda campaign and played the odd game (once a month) as a group at the battle bunker?

or is there something like this already happening somewhere?


might be a nice idea for an early fri evening/saturday event.. with the ability to use either necro minis or conversions to represent. (ie catachans converted up as goliaths, eldar with human heads and weaps as van saar)



dug out my rulebook last night.. this was something a couple of us were discussing at dragonfire before they closed down and i was throwing it out there to gauge interest.

I should also add some general advice here. Don't bother with chick flicks. The sad reality is that a chick flick never leads to snuggling. If there is post movie snuggling it was going to happen regardless of the movie viewed. Females only subject you to chick flicks to either test your dedication, punish you for something or because they don't see you as a romantic option.

I have the living rulebook on comp and wanna start a redemptionists Gang (already got conversions) but i am totally new to necro. Previously played a lot of mordheim and some inquisitor and just purchaced the new Warhammer Roleplay game from ACE Comics, as far as i am aware Necro is a mix of Mordheim and Inquisitor (2nd ed rules 40K) with no limits to warbands.

I am interested if you set up a league or campaign or something with progression.

well we shall see what kinda response we get here., might look at running a campaign 1 night a month over 10 months or something, top gang at the end recieves a trophy or something... think of it like social golf but with wardollies haha.

going to go over my rulebook tonight, i havent played necro in about 10 years myself but i loved it.. and i loved that it was more fast paced than a 40k game due to the smaller skirmish size.

well.. time to go over everything, keep tabs on this thread and begin to think of a campaign and start date if people end up interested.

You can count me in Chook(Sagan).

P.S. I beat Sagan's Van Saar in a refresher game last night, Got 3 of his KIA with only 1 loss on my side, and he failed his bottle test, but he did kill my Leader sad.gif

least all 3 of my boys came back fine... poor leader... that frag grenade really must have hurt.



but yep, if i go ahead with this will be looking at the end of feb/begining of march for the campaign start running through 1 night a month 10 rounds finishing at the start of december.

so.. if your keen.. theres plenty of time to get your gangs painted.. and due to the nature of upgrading ect ect obviously not gunna end up as wysiwyg but as long as everything is listed for people on your gang roster so they can see what the go is.. and your gangers are clearly named in some fashion so people know who is who all will be cool.


edit; All game rules/cost ect will be taken from the ORB and other errata ect from gw rather than the last released box game.

House Cawdor. I prefer Outlander Redemptionists myself, but Redemptionist Lite is also good I suppose..

Anyway, although I love Necro, I may sit this one out unfortunately. Sagan, PM'ing you my email in case you start up another one or want a casual game smile.gif

Actually the way Necromunda backstory indicates the redemptionists are a sub-culture of House Cowder, they are the HIGHLY religeous elements, that take on holy crusades in the Emperors name. Putting everything they come across to the torch.

House Cowder have a pretty rich and vibrant story to them. Would be good to see a Cowder show up in the campaign, but if you can't make it no sweat mate.

Sagan and I are always willing to help teach people the rules. I will leave it to Sagan to set things up tho.

end of feb beginning of march should be when we will all gather our gangs and start our rosters and play our first round. this gives time for anybody interested to convert up a gang, buy, paint their gangs and also to delve through the orb and familiarize themselves a bit... (for conversion ideas.. some eldar guardians with lasguns/las pistols/stub guns ect. with humans heads and maybe file their feet slightly less pointed would make excellent van saar stand ins.. modelling a heavy may be slightly more difficult however... orlocks/goliaths can be done using catachans)

been a long time for alot of us so iam sure the first few games will be slow goings.

but its all in the name of fun.

so either last weekend of feb or first weekend of march, final round will be run last week of nov/first week december. 10 rounds. rules taken from the GW sites resources section and also will be utilising leadership challenge rulings (believe these can be found in a thread in this subforum a bit further down)

gang with the highest rating at the end of 10 rounds shall win, and ill think up some sort of prize for that person and probably a wooden spoon for lowest rated tongue.gif

what iam hoping to see is even if theres only 5 or 6 of us playing.. people will see the game being played (particularly the youngsters) and begin to show interest in the specialist games.

also ill reiterate.. de to the nature of weapon upgrades ect changing a fair bit ect this is not a wysiwyg game. as long as all skills/weapons ect are on your roster visible for the opponent to check so he knows that the autogun wielding mini actually has a ccw and pistol instead things should be fine.. this will require the names of your characters to be painted/written on the bases... but heck everyone does that anyway. exception to this will probably be heavy weapons.

so stay tuned, immortal and i are playing games like maniacs to refresh ourselves so we can lend help where needed during games.. but also if anybody is well informed with the rules ect and can help out pointing out/helping with clarifications ect during the campaign that would be awesome as were all prone to mistakes. just hopefully we can all be mature about it.

For those interested I found out yesterday that Ace Comics Annerly are already running a Necro campaign every second Friday afternoon/evening. As this is close to home I will be heading down there for a few jaunts around the underhive. Now where did I put those escher models..............
